After collecting possibilities to use vi-bindings everywhere some time ago, I’m going to start a new collection. This time I am looking for tools and utilities that are based on plain-text. Using plain-text as a data format brings several benefits with it. For example you can use standard tools for synchronisation, version control, diffing or encryption. This overview simply represents my current knowledge. Having that said, I welcome every comment introducing new tools.read all
After months, I finally got my Emacs config published. It is now available on Github. So check out the config.org file for the main configuration. If you found interesting parts or ideas for improvements - just leave a comment below :)read all
Although I try to avoid to use word processors like LibreOffice Writer, sometimes - mainly for collaboration purposes - I have to fall back on them. And in such hard times I want to have at least some useful keybindings. Because I couldn’t find any downloads that provide Emacs bindings for OpenOffice/LibreOffice Writer I configured the basic bindings which you can download here.read all
In the past I tried a few systems, starting with Wordpress, then DokuWiki and then Textpattern. The reasons for this changes were mostly the extensibility of the systems and the way you write articles/posts etc. Until the next switch I think I’m happy with Hyde :)read all
I just wanted to share my happiness about a new workflow for writing presentations. I couldn’t believe how quick I got useful slides by writing my notes with Emacs’ Orgmode. So, here it is:
- Do some research or brainstorming or whatever and take notes with Orgmode
- Do a little cleanup on the structure of your notes so that you get a useful structure of your slides
- Export your notes with the LaTeX Beamer class
- You may have to append the defintion for beamer class to org-export-latex-classes. Here is my definition.
That’s it! This means you don’t waste any time with creating your slides and you can concentrate 100% on the content. I’m sure that’s (even more) faster than writing pure LaTeX and faster, nicer, … than [Open|Libre]Office/PPT anyway. Don’t know what to do with the whole time, but thanks Orgmode! :)
P.S.: Yeah, two posts below this one, I wrote about Vim – just don’t care ;)read all
This is a short summary of my bachelor thesis that was written in German. Maybe someone else is interested in the results.
So, to summarize this thesis, the main question is “Could MongoDB be an alternative to Virtuoso as triple store?”.read all
This should be a little overview of how to tweak some programs to use the awesome vi Bindings. I’m sure its not complete.
<Scheme name="_custom_" ...>section of your
~/.AbiSuite/AbiWord.ProfileIf you want to cycle through the input methods pressing F12, put
KeyBindingsCycle="1"also in this section.
echo "set -o vi" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "set editing-mode vi" >> ~/.inputrc(for other
readlinebased tools, e.g. psql)
- Emacs :)
echo "bindkey -v" >> ~/.zshrc

Dia ist seit einiger Zeit mein Standardprogramm wenn es um Diagramme geht. Für mein Studium brauchte ich Logikgatter nach IEC Norm, welche in Deutschland wohl Stand der Dinge wären. Da ich diese Shapes nirgends finden konnte, habe ich sie mal selber erstellt. Hier also die die entsprechenden Dateien: Download
Zum ‘Installieren’ einfach die beiden Ordner in das Verzeichnis ~/.dia/ (unter Linux) entpacken.
Und wem die Shapes nicht gefallen, hier noch die Quellgrafiken: Downloadread all
